My Simple Phone

◼ After years of pings, rings and dings, I decided to pare back my phone to the bare minimum.

No longer a distraction. No longer calling to me twenty-four hours a day, tempting me to check the next message, or what’s going on with my friends.

Six simple apps… audiobook, notepad, timer, phone, text and calendar.

I was tempted to downgrade to a dumb phone, but the calendar is vital to my digital life.

And with the phone in this simple state, it is simply a tool that helps me to live.
